UK destinations don’t come further flung than Shetland & Fair Isle; this six-night fly-drive demonstrates why they are two of our favourite islands.

Over the past few years we’ve fallen head-over-heels for Shetland, a wonderful land of oddness and otherness, rich in antiquity, unique culture, incredible scenery, warm welcomes and the longest of summer evenings.

While 27 miles offshore to the north of Shetland mainland, the island of Fair Isle, the UK’s furthest outpost island, is a tiny and breath-takingly beautiful jewel, rich in birdlife and with a dedicated community whose love for their home residents are only too eager to share with the few intrepid visitors who make the journey each year. It could be you…

All our trips are tailor-made, so just let us know if you’d like to spend longer in the far north, perhaps combining with Orkney too.

Pricing

£1295 per person in April, £1395 per person from May to September. **

The holiday also includes return flights from Glasgow or Edinburgh to Shetland and Shetland to Fair Isle, plus 7-days car rental.

**There is currently no suitable accommodation available for overnight leisure visitors on Fair Isle, so this holiday combination can be arranged with a day trip by air to the island, and an extended stay on Shetland.

Before your departure, you will receive personalised holiday information including full directions, recommended routes, and suggestions on places to visit depending on your interests and our local knowledge to ensure you get the most from your holiday.

All itineraries and room types are presented subject to availability at specific hotels.
